- Weigh 190 g of powder per litre of solution.
- Mix with 0.5 litres warm water (60˚C) using a whisk, for three minutes.
- Add 0.45 litres cold water and mix again (total 1 litre).
- Feed the milk replacer solution at body temperature (approximately 38 to 40˚C).
Lamb-Gro can also be used with automatic milk distribution systems, which mixes thoroughly the powder with water at 42 to 45˚C.
This schedule is only a guideline and should be adjusted to the needs of the lamb. Approximately 8 kg of milk replacer will be consumed per kid. The newborn lamb should receive 150 ml/kg bodyweight of colostrum (approx 600 ml). The sooner lambs receive colostrum the more effective the absorption of antibodies (protection against disease). If maternal colostrum is not available or to protect against disease transfer use a good quality colostrum replacer.

- Frequent feeding of small amounts will decrease digestive upsets.
- Reconstituted Lamb-Gro may be refrigerated up to 24 hours. Discard unused portion after 24 hours.
- Free choice milk is served at room temperature; do not leave lamb bar empty for more than two hours.
- Clean ALL feeding utensils and equipment after each feeding: rinse in lukewarm water, wash with a detergent in hot (80°C) water, rinse with clean water (ideally a 5 to 10% bleach solution daily) and dry thoroughly with a clean towel.
- Fresh, clean water should be available at all times.
- When lambs are consuming approximately 120 to 150 g of concentrate ration per day, weaning may begin. A gradual weaning process will reduce stress and weight loss at that time.
